But Jiggernaut, a Celtic-rock band based in Texas, trades the trudging through the mire of the mind for a punchier sound, including lively drumming and a bagpipe that sparkles, if such a thing can be said to be possible. This a cappella rendition sounds like it could be performed in a stone church, on a roadside stage, in a living room prayer meeting, or on the deck of a ship at sea.
Stripped of accompaniment, performed in a plain but strong voice, the song sounds nothing less than immortal. The second vocal-only track in a row, but this one sounds more vulnerable without the music to go with it. The tin whistle is hardly missed in the cover, proving the song is strong enough to retain its power without having to assert its Celtic heritage.
Where his first album was treated harshly by the critics, the second was eventually hailed as a masterpiece. It is now regarded as a classic of English folk rock and one of the Thompsons' finest achievements. In the sleeve notes for the CD re-release, David Suff writes: "Throughout the album Richard's sombre, dark songs are driven by his masterful understated guitar and Linda's haunting spiritual vocals. The songs detail a beautiful yet desolate world of life before the fall, the lives of the homeless, the thief and the inebriate.
The songs are thoroughly English in their mood and responsibility, wry observations of the hopelessness of the human condition. Richard denies that the song is totally pessimistic, "there's always hope in the third verse of my songs" yet the overall effect is a magnificent evocation of disillusionment.
